  • Without using a Bot

Using a Bot

One way of playing music on Discord is with the help of a bot. There are several bots that can be used for that matter out of which Jockie Music, Uzox, Fredboat, etc., are some of the most popular ones. You will simply need to add a Discord bot to your server to play music.

On Desktop
